#SNARKTEMBER 9th with @AnnieNicholas #GIVEAWAY

 Happy Hug Your Hound Day!

Anyone who follows me on Facebook or Twitter, knows that I’m a huge dog lover. As long as I can remember I’ve had a canine companion.
Presently, I have a Great Dane named Peanut (She really does think she’s the size of a nut) and my year old pup, Sadie, who is a mix breed of kissy-kissy and waggy tails. Both are rescues. Both are very much part of our family.
Now, this holiday was created by Ami Moore, the “Dog Whisperer of Chicago” to remind people of the importance of the relationship you share with your pet.
So, hug your animal today.
What does this have to do my latest release, Not His Werewolf?
I can tell you it has nothing to do with being a wolf shifter!
The main character of book 2 of Not This Series runs an animal shelter. After being disowned and labelled human because she can’t shift to wolf form, Betty Newman rescues unwanted dogs to fulfill her need for pack. Her dogs are family. She’s emotionally dependent on them and will go to great length to save her shelter.
Of course, things go wrong when Ken Birch wakes in her kennel still in wolf form and declares she’s his soul mate. His presence wakes her feral heart and makes her long for a life she can’t have. Old wounds are opened and she refuses to listen to instinct.
How can you celebrate Hug Your Hound Day?
Love your furry ball of joy. Maybe take a special walk with them or take them on that hike you’ve always wanted to. Spend some time looking at the world from their point of view and understanding their behavior.
For me, I plan to spend time showing my newest pup how to swim and giving away a signed print copy of this book. To enter, just leave a comment (about your pet maybe?) and I’ll pick winner next week.
Have a happy holiday!
I’m Annie Nicholas, signing out.

[NOTE from SnarkyMom – LOVE LOVE LOVE Annie Nicholas!  Such a fun & feisty “flavor” to all of her stories — check them out, ’cause I think you’ll love them, too!  Characters aren’t the typical; think of them as “rescues” that prevail, because they would be considered the “underdog” in many other stories!  Click the book covers below to check out the book – MANY are in Kindle Unlimited, and SEVERAL are FREE!!!!]

  • Alas, I am without pets right now.

  • I have three furbabies: two border terriers and one golden/greyhound mix (a rescue). LOL! As we’ve been preparing for Irma, one of my top concerns has been how they will go to the bathroom during the storm as that’s been a problem in past storms. In my mind, that’s ludicrous as all three love to swim but, heaven forbid, that they have to go to the bathroom in the rain. I’ve seen posted that some are setting up kiddie pools with sod in their garages. I would have, but with all the craziness, I’ve not found a kiddie pool nor the sod. Next time…

  • I have 2 crybabies who are complete opposites. Rainy is a full-blooded English Mastiff who is the laziest, and sweetest, dog I have ever had. Then there’s my Bella, a German Shepherd/Black Lab mix who bounces off the walls.

  • I have two inside cats and a snake. And 8 cats in my yard and 1 on my front porch! Help….

  • My family is now up to 4 cats from three since my dad moved in with me. Thankfully, mine get along well and the newest addition hasn’t made much waves. He’s a mellow guy.

  • No pets now, but long ago I had a rabbit and goldfish…
